"Mrs. McConnaughy (Jr. High English Language Arts Teacher) has been a joy to work since she started in our district. She is always willing to help students achieve to their fullest potential. In addition, she has been a valuable asset to our gifted curriculum and our annual spelling bee. She is very deserving of this award."
